Hello, I recently upgraded my hardware... and reinstalled windows 7.
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition 3.0GHZ
I changed the following hardwares:
500GB WD 7200rpm > 120GB OCZ SSD
4x1024 DDR2 > 2x4096 DDR2
GeForce 9800GT > XFX Radeon HD 6950
Original CPU Cooler > Corsair H50
ULTRA LS 500W > OCZ Mod Xstream-Pro 700W
Motherboard BIOS flashed
I installed windows 7 64bit Ultimate edition. Installed graphic driver
via online, and other drivers
via windows update. And when I started installing google chrome and other programs, all the blank screen started to show up.
At first, the screen just went to blank black.
Later, some vertical orange/white strips appeared.
Then, some kind of blue screen popped up.
Every time, music stops, and everything stops. It takes about 10 minutes or so, when all the freezing happens - totally random.
So I did some research - and saw a thread about "driver verifier."
After I set it up, BSOD just appears every time when I boot up - even before typing password to log on. I tried booting with safe mode - and got this message.

OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

Files that help describe the problem:
I am not even sure what to do... Windows 7 I installed never had problem on other computers. Also, for some reason, I couldn't get CPU Temperature via CPU-Z or any other windows applications. (only on mobo)
I think its the ATI driver thats getting me crazy.. but I am not sure.
Please help me... So sad my new desktop cant just work right now :<
